List of the greatest generation 1 Pokemon, ranked by their fan appeal and overall coolness. It's almost irrefutable that the original 151 Pokemon are the best Pokemon of all time, sparking a craze all over the world that no one could have seen coming. Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander are the starters in Pokemon Red and Blue, and there haven't been more iconic starters since.

Generation 1 placed the player in the Kanto region, where he collected gym badges while butting heads with his rival Gary. Legendary Pokemon in generation 1 included Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres, the legendary birds. Mewtwo and Mew were also introduced, becoming some of the most iconic Pokemon of all time. So who is the greatest Generation One Pokemon of all time? Cast your votes and let the world know what you think!
